Contrary to popular belief, Windows and Mac OS X do play nicely together. You just have to know the right way to get them to communicate. There are different ways to get there, albeit some very round-about ones, but I’m happy to show you the most direct, easiest way to attain files from a Windows computer from a Mac OS X computer. You don’t have to be a Mac / PC specialist or Windows and Mac OS expert to follow this.
Here’s the easiest way to access Windows files from Mac OS X:
- On your Mac, go to: Apple Menu->System Preferences->Sharing->select the File Sharing option->Options->and Select option to share files and folders using SMB
- Go to Finder sidebar->type in: Shared->You should now see your Windows computer to share files.
- If you still cannot see your Windows computer and folders, then try this. Go to: Finder->Go->Connect to Server->type in: “smb://” followed by your computer’s IP address or name (i.e. smb://192.168.1.5).
That’s it. Follow these 2-3 steps and you can call yourself a PC / Mac network specialist.
